The Bible says in Romans 10:8-10: “But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”
Today’s God’s Great Salvation quote is from Rick Warren. He said: “Through salvation our past has been forgiven, our present is given meaning, and our future is secured.”
Our topic today is titled What is Repentance About? (Part 2) from the book, “So Great Salvation: What it Means to Believe in Jesus Christ” by Dr. Charles Ryrie.
“The New Testament usage of repentance can be separated into three categories. First, there can be a repentance that either has no relation to eternal salvation or at least does not result in salvation. This may be labeled nonsaving repentance. It is not superficial, and it has a result or effect, though not salvation.”
